PM1448 Series Print Mechanism

GENERAL DESCRIPTION The DataPlot model PM 1448 Print Mechanism incorporates a fixed array thermal printhead with 448 heat element dots arrayed in a single line across the width of the paper. The mechanism holds a supply roll of thermal paper and causes that paper to move past the printhead in steps of approximately .005 inch. When driven by the DataPlot CB2448 Printer Control Board, the print mechanism steps the paper forward, pausing after each step to heat selected dots. In this manner, a dot matrix representation of alphanumeric and/or graphic data can be printed.
